I made my first cake back in November 2009 and was totally hooked! Having 3 children was a great way for me to practice and try new things each birthday. I knew it was a skill I wanted to progress so I signed up to my local college back in September 2010 to study cake decorating.
I have recently completed 4 years of the ABC Cake Decoration course with level 1, level 2 and level 3 all being passed with distinctions. All pieces of work produced over the course have been awarded distinctions.
I have won 9 Gold awards and 2 Silver awards of which 10 have won "Best in Class" in the Welsh International Culinary Championships 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2016. I won "Best in Show" 2014 and 2016 which I'm so overjoyed with. Especially as I won a new Kitchen Aid mixer for the 2016 show! My other awards include a Gold from Birmingham Cake International 2013 and a Gold and 2nd place in the student section from Birmingham Cake International 2014!
I finally took the plunge in March 2016 and officially started Di's Delights. I'm currently building up my business :-D
